Things are looking up

Today is the beginning of a new month. This morning, I covered a county council meeting. I love government meetings. But here, they do nothing and they only meet for less than a hour. Other reporters would be thrilled with a short meeting. I guess I got spoiled on the meeting in DCounty. They would easily be two to three hours. For the first time in a longtime, I went to sleep in the house by myself. Usually, there is JJ or my hubby. JJ is at my in-laws until Thursday afternoon and the fireworks will keep my hubby busy until Sunday.

I didn't sleep well. I guess it was too quiet without my hubby's snores and my son laughing in his sleep. I got up early and brought a newspaper. I live in NC but work in SC. The SC governor has lost his mind. He leaves the state unattended for a few days to go visit his mistress in Argentina on Father's Day weekend. This is one thing. But it's another to give an interview saying that his mistress is his soul mate but is trying to fall back in love with his wife. The man has lost his mind. I can't imagine what his wife must going through. My hubby and I have our issues but I would hope he would never do something like this.

Yesterday, I worked on another social eating milestone. It was a drop in retirement party. It is hard to socialize, eat and write. I managed to all quite well. There was fresh fruit, chicken salad, spinach dip, various wraps, a dessert with blueberries and strawberries and punch with fresh strawberries in it. I had chicken salad and fresh fruit. I was little anxious with all the food and people I didn't know but I took a deep breath and just did it. And thank God for the kind probate judge who took pity on me and introduced me to various people.

Daily Dose

1. When outgoing people help shy folks like me at a get together with lots of people.

2. County government meetings are becoming my latest addiction.

3. Fresh fruit is pretty good with a yogurt based dip.

Stopping ED from gaining

One of the hardest things I had to ever do was to explain my ED to my 11-year-old son. His father had talked to him about it, which I have...
